I ran the Payson Park Loop but I cut out the rollers, I wasn't feeling to good on the way out and then on the way back I got passed by my son Ethan's cross country coach, Jennifer Hughes so I just tried to keep a reasonable gap hoping it would motivate me... Bad idea, good idea? I was able to keep the gap the same and then with about a mile to go she slowed down just a little so I could catch her and she ran me in that last mile. It pretty much killed me but I'm glad I did it because I was able to turn a bad run into a good run and that is a good thing. I had MP miles of 7:56, 7:16, 7:33, my average pace was 8:20 with a total time of 51:57.  So it was a good run and it turned out totally differnet than I thought it would,  half way through I thought it was going to be one of those tough runs and it was tough but good at the same time.

See ya tomorrow.

Mini GU Corner route this morning via canal road, felt pretty good considering yesterdays 3 mile speed work. My average pace 8:37 with a total time of 1:01:43, my pace was slower at first but then as I got warmed up the pace came down into the 8:30 pace range.

See ya tomorrow.

I wasn't able to run this morning because of work so I ran after work and I did the woodland Hills route and extended up loafer canyon, I felt pretty good but I think I went a little fast on the downhill cuz I was tired towards the end but it was still a great run. I had some MP miles on the downhill, 7:41, 7:52, 7:50, 8:00, my average pace was 8:16 with a total time of 1:03:39.

See ya tomorrow.

Mini Gu Corner route this Morning all via canal road, I was pretty surprised how fast my legs bounced back after the hard hill run last night... My pace was easy and they fielt a little tired towards the end but overall pretty darn good, my average pace was 8:44 with a total time of 53:06. It was way cooler this morning and boy did it feel nice, it was a beautiful morning and I'm glad I was able to get out.

See ya tomorrow.

I was glad that I was able to get out this morning and I ran out past Gu corner and down into the river bottoms, I felt really strong the last half of this long run than I have on any of the previous ones that I have done.  Long runs are not my favorite part of training and I have to really find the motivation at times and today was one of those times to actually complete them... My average pace was 8:27 with a total time of 1:59:37, my pace was faster towards the end which is a really good sign, I feel like I am on the right track with my training.

See ya Monday.
